The show begins with a poignant, heartfelt speech by Deuce.
The hosts review:
The hosts all enjoyed the movie. None had any expectations but they were all satisfied. David said that what worked was that the audience had to believe the play between Tucker and Dale and the believability as to why the kids seemed to be killing themselves. The ridiculousness of it works. One of David’s favorite parts was that, whenever Tucker was injured, he treated each horrific wound by pouring beer on it. They also agreed that the chemistry between Tyler Labine and Alan Tudyk was really good.
They discussed how this movie turns the commentary on horror movies and how hillbillies would usually be the bad guys. They also touch on how, in almost every horror movie, the young people will almost always jump to conclusions, thus setting themselves up to be killed. The conversation touches on “reasonable” ways to save oneself from the horrors of being killed while on a camping trip.
There was also a touch of sadness at the fact that there was no camping-sex, as tends to be the norm for these movies, as well.
Talk then turns to wet t-shirt contests… and David’s participation in said contest, and SausageFest antics of past years.

Summing this all up, David ranked the movie (out of five fat hillbillies) with four fat hillbillies and one skinny hillbilly.
